on early voters. >> evan? >> obama, but we still have a long way to go. >> nina? >> i hate doing this, but i would say obama because of the ground again, but that is just today. >> that's ok. colby? >> the national tracking polls as them close, but if you go to the key battleground states, obama still holds a lead in those states and that will put him over the top. >> what is the ground game, mark? >> the organized effort over months to identified not only supporters not onlyleaners -- only supporters, but leaners. by election day, you know who your voters are and you want to be sure they go to a. > -- to vote. >> in many the battleground states, obama has more field offices. >> it comes down to micro- managing and micro-issuing these folks. the republicans have a better ground game in 2004, and a lot of people think it that is why they won that close election, and it fell into disrepair today are building it back up now, but i don't think they are near where obama is yet. >> which candidate has the most enthusiastic, the most in gauge, the most dedicated supporters, colby? >> that i
voters and moderates taking about bipartisan ship and his pledge to do what he says barack obama failed to do. he was criticizion -- criticizing where he said he would be bipartisan and said that's what mr. obama did not do on obama care and a hoses of other issues. mitt romney offering an olive branch to the swing voters. >> he promised that it would be a post partisan presidency. we watched him over the last four years and he has been decisive and demonized any group that opposed him. he promised to cut the deficit in half. i know he says he wants to do something that helps with the budget, but to balance the budget it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budgets. >> from florida to new evening land, the nation watches as hurricane sandy prepares to bear down and slam into the atlantic coast. in florida they are not expecting to be too badly hit. he was asked to postpone all events. [no audio]. >> that's too bad. i was saying how well it was working while he was on the campaign bus. apologize for that technical glitch. we have team coverage of both campaigns coming up a little la
about targeting young voters there. >> we're down to the turnout operations. >> obama's the one who is working it harder. >> 11 days left. there's 11 days left in this campaign. every move counts right now. >> are you fired up? are you ready to go? >>> with just 11 days until the election, which of course means 12 days until john sununu climbs back into his cave, and with only minutes left in which mitt romney can convince me to vote for him, mitt romney remains silent today about his favorite crazy people. mitt romney hasn't answered a single question about the only senate candidate he has done a campaign ad for. the candidate who said this. >> i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> today a reporter asked romney campaign senior adviser eric fehrnstrom why the campaign has not asked mourdock to pull the television ad. he said that's his decision. today in wisconsin vice president joe biden had to say about mitt romney and paul ryan. >> they can't even get up the gumption to condemn the statements made by
in ohio. where a new cnn opinion research poll of likely ohio voters shows president obama running at 50% and mitt romney trailing at 46%. early voting has been under way in ohio for 25 days. today, president obama campaigned on local ohio television via satellite from washington. >> i'm very confident and the reason is first of all we've got incredible volunteers and folks who are out there making phone calls and knocking on doors and as you know early voting has started in ohio and we've seen a huge up surge in people taking advantage of that. so we've got a pretty good sense of who's actually voting in ohio. >> joining me now are joy reid and ohio state senator nina turner. senator turner you've had get out the vote rallies repeatedly. what have you been doing today and in the last 11 days to get out the vote? >> we're firing up the president's base and making sure that people understand that this is a choice election and in that no one can sit this out and we have to make sure that in the state of ohio that we continue to rally the base, get folks excited and they are very excited, l
of new hampshire likely voters has president obama leading mitt romney by three points, 49 to 46. tonight, nate silver of the new york times blog forecasts that on november 6th, president obama has a 74% chance of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the president needs to learn how to be an american. he's the one who called the president lazy after the first d
in record numbers this year. in every poll that we have seen of latino voters, president obama is above 70%, and mitt romney does not break 23%. and you have republican pollsters saying that if mitt romney doesn't get at least 38%, something that his own campaign is saying, of the latino vote, there's no way that he can win. in 2010, people had harry reid on par with sharon engel going into election day and he ended up beating her by five to seven points, and why was that? because all of the pollsters were missing the latino support that harry reid had. and i think that that is absolutely going to be the case, especially in these southwestern states. i think you need to add at least four percentage points nationally, and in these states to president obama's numbers. i think it's going to be part of his firewall along with the women's vote. >> so amy, what should romney be focusing on? should he even reap out to latinos at this point with so little time? >> of course, he should be reaching out to all voters, and that's where he's foe cushion his message. i think it's interesting that you se
they will. where as the obama campaign has done much better among what they call sporadic voters. >> sporadic voters. all right. ari melber, don't go anywhere. sit right. we'll bring a few more folks into our conversation. this is what we like to call the brain trust there is perry bacon, fellow msnbc contributor, and suesan ferrechio. we've seen polling, we've seen numbers from a variety of sources. governor romney behind in early voting in key states like iowa, like ohio, like florida. his camp isn't that interested in grabbing early votes. so what does he need to do to win as opposed to the president who seems to have fortified his standing? >> the key thing to think about is ari's use the term sporadic. what both campaigns are trying to do is find people who didn't vote in 2010, for instance, and they want particularly obama's campaign wants to find people. they want to use the early vote time to find people who didn't vote in 2010, come to their house over and over again, call them over and over again, and make sure they vote. that's more important for obama because a lot of
, then they lean back toward obama. so if they can just make these women voters have that issue at the top of their minds instead of the economy, that's what's going to sway them. gwen: here's an issue that's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics matter or was this about both of them trying to look like the commander fdemeef >> it was a good strategy
in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. virginia has been even tending a little toward romney in my judgment. ohio has been a little stickier. are the auto bailout is an issue there. if you look at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have gotten from that -- that huge barrage of antiromney ads they ran before the convention. i would say this, though, sean. i think there is
estimates obama is likely to win 217 of them, romney 191. >>> u.s. voters seem buried under massive amounts of information and claims made by the presidential candidates. many vers can't ll whether the information is accurate or even true. nhk world's susumu kojima reports. >> in the last four years you cut permits and licenses on federal land and federal waters in half. >> not true, governor romney. >> so how much did you cut them? >> not true. >> reporter: in the presidential debates and tv ads, both candidates have bolstered their arguments with a lot of facts. often one candidate refutes the other's information. many voters don't know who or what to believe. >> it's hard to tell a lot of times whether what they're saying is actually true. >> i think it's important in any democracy to have some way to objectively check the claims that politicians sometimes make. >> reporter: now the public is getting help from fact checkers. these experts and journalists check the accuracy of the candidates' facts and make the findings public. >> over the last 30 months, we have seen 5 million jobs in th
is strongest among democrats where obama is weakest, where he's relatively strong on white working class voters, for instance. like what the jewish mother says about chicken soup, couldn't hurt, but could it hurt by contrast? i'm inclined to think no. >> a.b., jeff brings up a good point. president obama taking bill clinton to youngstown, ohio. he's not looking to pick up young black voters with bill clinton by his side. he's looking to pick up those blue collar, those elusive white men the president has had so much trouble with. if you were involved in the campaign, would you have kept these two together on the trail or had them hit separate cities in some of the swing states? >> that's an interesting question. i think it's more powerful when president clinton is with president obama. the clinton bump, and it was literally called that following the democratic national convention in charlotte was significant because it was the first time someone got up there and said as only a president could, no president could have fixed the financial mess we were in, the economic trouble we were in in 2008 i
the money is, the obama campaign says the president is going where the voters are. such as "inside edition." >> "inside edition's" a really popular show. >> reporter: especially the young voters they need to win. the president often focuses on issues like student loans and contraception. the president, in our latest abc news/"washington post" poll, is winning almost two-thirds of voters under 30, and he needs them to turn out in droves. thus, this from the first lady on "jimmy kimmel" -- >> election day! election day! up and at 'em! >> reporter: actress lena dunham from the hbo series "girls" taped this web video ad about "your first time." >> you want to do it with a great guy. >> reporter: your first time voting, that is. and the randy nature of that web ad, of course, illustrates the potential downsides for the president that he risk being seen as unpresidential or unserious. one other note, diane, because of the pending arrival of hurricane sandy, some events with the presidential campaign have been canceled including one with joe biden in virginia beach and one with michelle obama in
voters out there. president obama and governor romney spending millions to get their vote. especially in battleground states. check out this cnn electoral map. the states in yellow are up for grabs. blue are safe for obama. light blue, leaning obama. red, those are safe for romney. light red leaning romney. but what will it take to win over the undecided voters, what do they want to know. "saturday night live" had this take. >> before you get our vote, you're going to have to answer some questions. questions like -- >> when is the election? >> what are the names of the two people running? and be specific. >> who's the president right now? is he or she running? >> in real life, undecided voters sound like this. >> i want there to be continued job growth. >> don't say republican, don't say democrat, just get it done. >> i have not heard anything other than this tough guy rhetoric, and numbers that don't add up. >> it's critical right now, to make the best decision. >> a lot of people need relief, and i'm not too sure the election is going to give it, no matter who gets elected. >> i hop
early voters to the polls. we saw video of president obama doing just that last week. and for them it's always been a state by state race. this idea of momentum versus the cold reality of the electoral map. >> okay. i understand that susan's back plugged in with us. susan i was asking about your sort of big picture perspective given how much you've covered politics. any parallels to draw from previous elections? where do you think we stand right now? what's your sense of it? >> my ninth election this feels like one of the closest ever. feels really like 2000. because as i just heard rachel saying, the president was in pretty good shape before that first debate that has really changed since then the momentum since then has been on romney's side. what that means is in these last ten days things like that final jobs report next friday or hurricane sandy, these could make enough difference to tilt an election that is so close so soon before election day. >> well, susan, when you say it feels like 2000, does that extend to the possibility of what was reported in the "washington post" today
on women voters to help propel president obama to a second term. governor romney surging. he's nearly even with the president among registered female voters, a number that puts the proposed gender gap into question here. let's bring in our panel. beth, lynn, good afternoon to both of you. beth, let me show you one more number from your poll if i could put it up. president obama's 16-point lead with women on the economy. now a four-point disadvantage. how worried should democrats be? >> very worried. if this is actually going to bear out, it's a disaster for the democratic ticket. president obama underperforms with men, particularly white men at such a large degree that he needs to overperform with women. the obama campaign is really questioning these polling figures saying that the president is still well ahead with women. it's unclear. we are seeing that trend in basically all the polling across the board. that he's lost a lot of ground with women since the first debate. the president has to make up that deficit with women if he's going to win. there is no other way. his deficit with men
is in ink for all to read. >> there was a new ad out for the obama campaign where a young female voter is looking into the camera and urging i guess other female verdicts veordz, if it is your first time. have you seen the ad, judy? bordering on tasteless. >> the issue for the campaign, is it effective. younger people tended to respond well to that ad. >> narrative thing, does jim messina and david plouffe directly want to answer dunham's strange endorsement of her. the answer is no, they don't have to. the media don't make the obama people to answer. it's the media. >> it's one thing. >> alan is admitting to it on the air. >> jeed plural which is why we have a show. >> jon: here is another example of media values perhaps conservative values in and the kind of treatment they get. these are the lsu, louisiana state -- i lost the name of the -- i forget what they call themselves. at any rated, there is a picture. they have crosses as part of their body paint. when lsu chose to put it out in some kind of university publication, they airbrushed the crosses out and subsequently apologized.
is trying to keep voters focused on the economy telling them he could do better than president obama. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> we've been traveling by bus over the last few days, ohio and iowa, one thing we've heard, he's been debuting this new theme, he is the agent, he is the candidate of big change and the president is just more of what he calls the status quo. one thing we can also report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hi
bids to voters the battleground state of viola today. romney slamming president obama armas added policies that have slowed our recovery while promising big change under of romney-right administration. with more on this, senior fellow for the hoover institute and foer chief onomic adviser to president george w bush. welcomback to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 milln more jobs the president obama promisedhis stimus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business d investment. even as president bama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't thk it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economhas ben traveling through for the p
. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on i
